Who doesn’t want to slather hyper-hydrating, luxuriously rich and all-natural body butter all over themselves? It’s time to indulge in the now melt Slather Worthy Body Butter infused with cannabis and sweet strawberry.

With a subtly sweet total-body moisturizer free from harmful chemicals, this is the only cannabis edible that’s not just good enough to eat but, thanks to all the delicious ingredients, actually completely edible.

But before we apply a second layer, let’s pause to appreciate all the powerful benefits of these incredibly versatile skincare products. From body butter benefits to the ingredient list, it’s time to unpack what’s inside the jar.

What is Body Butter?

Body butter is a deeply hydrating skin moisturizer with a thick, creamy consistency unlike anything else in your skincare routine. Body butters are specifically designed for total body hydration to nourish every square inch of your skin, from dry heels to chapped lips. They are typically made with natural oils like shea butter, cocoa butter, mango butter, and coconut oil (all of which contain essential fatty acids) for a rich texture that is much heavier than regular lotions or creams.

Other common ingredients include essential oils for natural fragrance and perhaps a few additional ingredients to help boost its beneficial effects. For example, our Slather Worthy Body Butter contains 50 mg of full-spectrum cannabis extract to help soothe localized soreness and decrease signs of inflammation.

Because of their thicker consistency and moisturizing properties, butters are particularly effective for dry and very dry skin types. In fact, you may already be familiar with them if you’ve suffered from roughness, flakiness, and excessive dryness.

How do they provide such moisturizing nourishment compared with your typical cream? Rich oily ingredients help create a protective barrier on the skin to lock in that hydration. Body butter is the perfect final step of your daily healthy skincare regimen.

What is Edible Body Butter?

Unlike most of the body butters you’ll find on store shelves, edible body butter is a type of moisturizing product designed for both topical applications and consumption. It serves dual purposes as a skin care product and as a sensual enhancement for sensual activities.

Edible body butters are specially formulated to ensure that every single ingredient is not just nourishing but also safe to eat. That means food-grade, natural ingredients such as shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil. They can also be infused with tasty flavors, like mint, chocolate, or in our case, strawberry.

Our Slather Worthy Body Butter is the only edible option infused with powerful relief from cannabis extract. Every jar contains 50 mg of THC from a full-spectrum extraction. Whether you dive in for a little taste, a full spoonful, or stick with it as a topical, you get to curate your own luxurious experience.

The 5 Body Butter Benefits

Now let’s talk benefits of body butter:

1. Hydrates and Moisturizes

First and foremost, we love body butter because it’s an intense moisturizer. With naturally hydrating ingredients like shea butter and coconut oil, body butter has an unmatched ability to deeply hydrate and moisturize your skin.

Unlike regular lotions with a more liquidy consistency, body butter penetrates the skin more thoroughly, ensuring long-lasting moisture. This helps reestablish the natural moisture balance, leaving your skin smooth, supple and luminous.

2. Relieves Itching and Flakiness

If you have dry and irritated skin, body butter is a good source of relief. Gently massaged into the itchy or flaky areas, the thick, emollient texture of body butter provides immediate relief to these symptoms, making your skin feel smooth and comfortable.

3. Reduces Signs of Aging

Although this will always depend on what types of ingredients go into the formulation, many body butters contain naturally age-defying ingredients. For example, let’s look at shea butter, which, according to a 2018 article, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties due to compounds like triterpenes. These compounds may help with cell migration and collagen production. Some evidence suggests that shea butter may also be effective against wrinkles.

4. Protects From Environmental Damage

Speaking of antioxidants, body butters often include ingredients rich in antioxidants, which protect our skin from damage from pollution, UV rays and other environmental stressors.

Antioxidants neutralize harmful molecules known as free radicals. These unstable molecules can damage skin cells, leading to premature aging and other skin issues. By donating an electron, antioxidants stabilize these free radicals and prevent them from causing harm.

The now melt Slather Worthy Body Butter formula is packed full of natural ingredients like jojoba oil, shea butter, coconut oil, and cocoa butter, which all have antioxidant properties.

5. Has Multi-Purpose Applications

Body butter isn’t just for dry hands or cracked heels. It is a multi-purpose skincare product designed to deliver intense hydration, whether you need it or not. Use it as a lip balm or for blemishes on your legs. Use it on your face for dry patches, or apply it liberally everywhere to feel soft after a hot bath. Some people have even reported using it as a leave-in conditioner for damaged hair or as a makeup remover because of its oil-rich nature. Before using, check with your dermatologist prior to applying anything to your face!

Body Butter Benefits Start With the Ingredients

All the benefits of body butter come down to what’s inside the jar. This is why we’ve ensured that Slather Worthy Body Butter from now melt is packed with beneficial and natural ingredients with no harsh chemicals. It’s a natural body butter formulated for radiant skin and intense hydration.

The beauty of our one-of-a-kind body butter formula is that all the natural ingredients don’t just come together into a sweet-smelling skin care product, they are so natural you can eat them. Infused with cannabis extract, this means a powerfully soothing experience, inside and out.

Here are just a few of the powerful ingredients you’ll find inside:

Shea Butter

Shea butter is a fat extracted from the nuts of shea trees, primarily found in West Africa. It has moisturizing properties, as it’s the fatty acids that help hydrate and nourish the skin, and it also creates a smooth, soft barrier that seals in moisture for several hours.

Studies have shown that shea butter has anti-inflammatory effects and may soothe skin irritation and conditions like eczema. It also contains antioxidants like vitamins A and E that combat free radicals and may encourage collagen production to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is good for just about everything. It also has powerful moisturizing properties, which people have used as a highly effective treatment for dry and cracked skin for millennia. Because it creates an oily skin barrier, coconut oil decreases transepidermal water loss (TWL), preventing excessive evaporation from the skin, which means it locks in moisture for a very long time.

Coconut oil is yet another plant-based ingredient with anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness and irritation. There is even some evidence it could help with skin conditions like eczema and dermatitis.

Cocoa Butter

Cocoa butter is derived from the cocoa bean, the same bean used to make chocolate. It’s known for its rich, creamy texture that creates a protective barrier over the skin to lock in moisture. High in fatty acids, cocoa butter hydrates deeply, making it ideal for dry or rough skin.

Cocoa butter also contains antioxidants that fight free radicals and protect the skin from environmental damage. It is often applied to improve skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks and provide a smooth, soft texture.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is extracted from the seeds of the jojoba plant and closely mimics the skin’s natural sebum, making it an excellent moisturizer. It helps to balance oil production, making it suitable for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin.

Rich in vitamins E and B-complex, jojoba oil aids in skin repair and damage control. Its anti-inflammatory properties help to reduce redness and soothe irritated skin, while its antioxidant properties protect against environmental damage.

Apricot Kernel Oil

Apricot kernel oil is lightweight and easily absorbed, making it an excellent moisturizer that doesn’t leave a greasy residue. It is rich in vitamins A and E, which nourish and protect the skin.

This oil improves skin tone, maintains softness and radiance and reduces the appearance of fine lines. Its anti-inflammatory properties can soothe minor skin irritations, making it suitable for sensitive skin.

Cannabis Extract

Cannabis extract, especially full-spectrum extract, is known for its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It helps to soothe and calm the skin, making it beneficial for conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

The Slater Worthy Body Butter formula contains full-spectrum THC, which is helpful for soothing localized joint discomfort and reducing the signs of aging by combating free radicals.

Strawberry Extract

Strawberry extract is rich in antioxidants like vitamin C, which helps to brighten the skin and protect it from environmental damage. Strawberry water and extractions also contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) that gently exfoliate the skin, promoting a smoother and more radiant complexion.

This extract helps to reduce inflammation and soothe irritated skin. Strawberries’ natural fruit acids help minimize pores and control excess oil, making the extract beneficial for dry and oily skin types.

Time To Add Body Butter Benefits to Your Skincare Routine

There is no secret to incorporating the benefits of body butter into your daily routine. Morning, noon or night, applying body butter is as easy. Just dip into your stash for a small amount and then gently massage it in.

And with the now melt Slather Worthy Body Butter, all those benefits can go beyond skin deep, because the ingredients are all edible.

Of course, our edible body butter is, first and foremost, hydrating, but it’s also infused with cannabis extract for relief and strawberry extract for a sweet taste.

Because it’s so deliciously edible (it tastes like white chocolate strawberries), this product offers much more than just your usual beauty-brand body budder. We know we aren’t the only ones ready to apply a second layer and a second taste!
